    Our adoption procedure is as follows:   If you see a dog you are interested in, please email us at BuckeyeACDRescue@gmail.com   We will review the applications and determine if the dog seems appropriate for the applicant.   We will then contact veterinary and personal references before calling the applicant to discuss the dog and it's needs.    If it seems like the dog would be a good fit, we will arrange a meeting.   Any current dogs will need to be present for the meeting to see how they get along.  Meetings are done at the dog's foster home.


    Please know that we take our dogs' physical and mental health very seriously and WILL call your veterinary reference.   We will check with your veterinarian to ensure that your past and current pets have been altered, kept up to date with appropriate vaccinations, have been routinely heartworm tested and kept on year-round heartworm preventatives.   We will also be asking if your pet(s) are on a flea/tick medication as well.  

    Our adoption fee is $300.    This fee helps cover all veterinary and other needs the dogs has, including spaying/neutering, all vaccinations, microchipping etc.   ALL dogs will be fully vaccinated and altered before adoption.   Our vaccine protocol includes DHLPP, Bordetella, CIV (both strains), Lyme and Rabies.   Dogs will have been dewormed, fecal tested and started on both heartworm and flea/tick prevention before adoption. 

    Since the majority of our dogs come from shelters, most will have unknown histories, but we will do our best to ensure they are healthy, socialized, house-trained and crate trained.   Some dogs will need continued work on some behaviors, but we will not adopt out dogs with aggression issues.   Most dogs in our rescue will have lived with cats, other dogs and sometimes children, so we can get a good idea how a dog will react in its forever home.
